Here's a .jpg of my setup, the .bmp might not open for some you you. If you are seriously going to get into leaf removal and use a vac soing so, I would go bigger than a 16hp....maybe a 20hp or larger.

We also have the 16hp Lesco. We put a hitch on our dump trailer that a platform goes into and the loader sits on. When its time to dump we slide the platform/loader onto our forklift.

We use a hitch mount 11HP Trac Vac. Great machine, but I am trying to talk my friend into selling me his 18HP that he never uses. It is a tailgate mount, but they welded a platform under it to ride on the A frame of a trailer, or to be used in a 2" hitch reciever.

I have an UltraVac on my Lazer HP 52. I have a Trac-Vac leaf loader that had a Briggs 11 horse, but I re-powered it w/ a 14 horse Kohler Command 2 years ago.

I use a 16hp Hi-way leaf vac mounted on the front of my truck on the plow frame. The Hi-Way brand is the same as billy goat, just painted a different color. I have had no problems with the setup and have used it for two years

For the guy's using the Cyclone Rake, how do you like it? I have been looking at them for awhile now. Lately I have been highly considering getting one, the commercial unit, what options do you suggest, any pointers. I am going to have to do somthig soon due to leaf season approching fast. thanks for the replies.
